The Return of Air Quotes

Daughter, discovering the power of 3s where air quotes are concerned:
Just because I didn't "STICK" it "ON" with "GLUE"...

My conclusion is that air quotes on a five year old make everything sound more fun. Things I should try:
  • Honey, it's time for "school"!
  • You really need to "straighten up" your room. It looks like a "bomb" went off in there!
  • It's only "broccoli"!
  • When I said "ignore" your brother, I didn't mean "refuse to speak to him all week."
  • It is "pink." Trust me!
  • Yes, that was a "lie."

Hm. It's a "gray area."
